I have my English Literature mock in 1 day and I’m stressing out because I haven’t done any notes or learnt any quotes. I barely understand the novella even though I reread the book and read the pages that’s before the story.

I don’t know how to write essay answers or answer the questions for ‘A Christmas Carol ‘ plus I can’t think of any fancy words to use in my essays. I want to write about context in each of my paragraphs but I don’t know how to link it to my quote.

Also I have a serious problem of when during my exams my mind goes completely blank that nothing comes to mind. Only when’s it 5mins left I just force myself to write anything and pray it gets me marks.
I can only write half a side of A4 which is pretty bad.

I desperately need help please as I don’t know how to get started on my revision or what to start first when revising A Christmas Carol. Do I even have enough time to at least revise? I just want a grade 6 but I don’t see it happening.

Any advice please?

Try getting this book - it’s so helpful and I got a FP 8 in my exam just by reading through it. It might not help for your mock tomorrow but will help for your GCSE exam if you study it over a longer period of time.

I have the book at home and it's a brilliant book! I'm just an idiot. But I'll definitely try understand the book and learn more new things from it.
Thank you anyway!

It actually went quite well as we luckily got an easy question. Hopefully my grade matches how I feel. Thanks for asking
